Miter Saw LED Work Light System from DeWALT

HAMPSTEAD, Md. - DeWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, today announced the launch of its Crosscut Positioning System (XPS™) worklight (DWS7085). The DWS7085 can be easily mounted onto the cutting head of the DW713, DW715, DW716 and DW718 miter saws, providing users with an additional light source that helps to increase productivity and cut alignment.

Professional contractors often work in dimly lit areas, which slows the pre-cut process, makes pre-measured marks on material difficult to see, and creates inconsistent cuts. DEWALT has engineered the XPS™ worklight to enhance productivity, visibility and accuracy by creating an unobstructed view of the miter cut area.

The DWS7085 is designed with a Crosscut Positioning System that offers a blade shadow cut line indicator, helping users to make fast and accurate cuts to materials of all widths. The worklight is powered by a separate power supply enabling users to use the light with or without blade operation.

For increased durability, the DWS7085 can be secured tightly to the miter saw and is not vulnerable to vibration. The encapsulated L.E.D. lamp ensures that the XPS™ worklight is moisture resistant and weather tolerant for use in any jobsite environment. DEWALT engineered the XPS™ worklight with a L.E.D. lamp that lasts up to five years.
